This week at Champion’s QUEST, we are dedicated to providing Parents and Athletes with knowledge about the College Prep process to achieving the ultimate goal of being a: COLLEGE STUDENT-ATHLETE.
In this video, Coach Brittany talks about Marketing Yourself to College Coaches by showing off your Athletic Strengths in videos and sharing with College Coaches.
Whether you are looking to attend college out of California or the local Junior College down the street, College Coaches unfortunately do not have enough time to go out and watch every player that emails them. You must stand out in a different way!
Athletes sometimes have a hard time explaining their Athletic Strengths in an email or on the phone with College Coaches. It can be frustrating for parents and athletes during the recruiting process. So instead of worrying about how the email sounds or if you made your athlete sound the best, use videos to show the College Coach exactly what you are attempting to say!
If you have an amazing Vertical Jump and your rebound percentage in basketball is your greatest athletic strength, send video of your training session at Champion’s QUEST working on your explosive power -and- then send another video of all our rebounds from last weekend’s basketball tournament.
Competing against athletes across the entire nation for a spot on a college team can be daunting and scary, so be creative and show the College Coaches you deserve that scholarship on the team and you have the athletic ability to help their athletic program.
Check out Coach Brittany’s video as she displays an athlete’s Greatest Athletic Strength: POWER in her recent training session.
Notice how the clips are short and straight to the point: POWER! Coach Brittany gave a short intro and exit to open the video. It is a great idea for athletes to give a quick intro introducing themselves (name, graduation year, sport, position, team name, high school) -and- state what the college coach is about to view.
Remember, it’s great to show off your Athletic Strengths! Go get that College Scholarship!
